Tutorial: Aperture Card I

Okay, so basically we're talking about a card with a hole in it, and surprisingly I actually have three different methods for putting in that hole depending on how much work you want to do, how big your cardstock is and what sort of effect you're after. Here's the first method...


1. Start by decorating the front of your card blank as desired. Keep it fairly simple at this stage as you can add more embellishments at the end.


2. Use your favourite tool to make a hole through the front of your card.



3. Add your embellishment or stamped image through the hole in the front of the card, making sure you avoid any overlap with the edges of the hole. Your embellishment will be visible from the front of the card, but will actually be on the inside.

4. Decorate as desired... easy!
